Ohmigosh. I think that I just died and went to heaven.
Not sure how, but as you do, I stumbled across a “new-to-me” store on Etsy: Astexco.
They are based in the Czech Republic and have been trading for 20 + years, but are new to selling on Etsy.
They are also one of the freshest exporters of this type of wonderful vintage glass, that I have seen. They have some of the same items as other sellers. But oh, my goodness–they have so much more.
I am only going to focus this post on the glass beads. Buttons deserve a whole post of their own.
Did I mention one of the best parts, besides the nice price points, is the flat $6.00 shipping cost to the U.S. Are you kidding!?
I am just trying to narrow down my wishlist.
Le. Freaking. Sigh.
Astexco: I love you.
